    Damn, that is a lot of Wii U consoles.
    There are a lot of mistakes in the article. A source has confirmed that Wii Us were stolen.

    What's the point if you're not to going to steal quality?

    I love how the Wii/Wii U differentiation is a mess in the article.

    Meh. If they actually stole Wii U systems instead of regular Wii consoles, I don't really care. xD

    I hope they're prepared to deal with Nintendo's "No Backsies" policy.

    This confusion is why nintendo shouldnt have named the wii "wii u"

    it sounds stupid, causes confusion like this, and causes most non-gamers(a large part of nintendo's consumers) not even know what it is

    Now if they are clever and manage to sell the consoles without being caught, they are going to make a huge profit... But man, how in the world can this even happen? I mean it must have been planned somehow. Because I don't think one of the thieves was like "let's hook up some trucks and steal some WiiU consoles right now"

    The easiest +7000 the Wii has ever had for its "Number of units shipped worldwide" figures.

    Because it earns you lots of money if you do it properly.
